Former Vice President Joe Biden was interviewed on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” by Al Sharpton. Biden said that President Trump’s assertion that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election is a “flat lie.”
“It’s a lie,” he told MSNBC host and East Harlem preacher Al Sharpton. “The assertion the President made from the beginning is a flat lie.” Biden also said that Republicans are trying to suppress minority votes by pushing for voter identifications laws.

“It’s what these guys are all about, man,” Biden, also a former Delaware senator, said. “Republicans don’t want working class people voting. They don’t want black folks voting,” he stated. He noted that he was meeting with Sharpton at the University of Pennsylvania in West Philadelphia, PA. Biden went on to say that if the Continental Congress was holding its constitutional convention across town today, “70 percent of the Republicans” would vote for an amendment barring people without a college degree from voting. That’s another outright lie.
Biden also claimed that voter ID laws would hurt the elderly, lower-class people without access to a car and called for “automatic registration” upon turning 18. This is a move to legalize illegal alien voting. It also opens the door further for massive voter fraud.
Al Sharpton also pressed Biden on running for the 2020 presidency. Biden didn’t deny it and it is being reported he is the front runner for the Democrats. He said he hopes that someone else in the Democratic Party will step up to face Trump, adding that he was focused on his family in 2016. He’s still using his son’s death as a sympathy ploy. And he’s still bringing up how his family previously faced sudden tragedy when his first wife and daughter were killed in a New Castle County, DE car accident in 1972. I’ve never seen someone use the deaths of loved ones for blatant political purposes like Joe Biden does.
Here’s a partial transcript of the interview:
SHARPTON: Let me ask you about voting rights. That was another thing the Obama-Biden administration was heavy on under attorney general well as Lynch going in with lawsuits against voter ID and doing in to deal with voter suppression. They have said that foreigners are voting.
BIDEN: It’s a lie. It’s a flat lie. The assertion the president made from the beginning is a flat lie. Every study, every program -every commission that looked at it said it’s simply not true. It’s part of the big lie. You realize just in past year, in 24 states, the administration’s allies have introduced 60 pieces of legislation, or maybe 70 pieces of legislation, to curtail the franchise. It’s what these guys are all about, man. These Republicans don’t want working-class people voting. They don’t want black folks voting. Look what we are doing now. There’s a movement. You have George Will making the argument that felons should have their—after serving their time—their right restored to vote. What is the one thing we want people getting out of prison to do? We want them to engage in society again. What’s the most significant thing you can do to engage? Get in and vote. These guys, you’re talking about 1.5 million people who have served their time who are unable to vote. Of those there are 30% or more that are African American. We should have like other countries have, automatic registration. You turn 18, you go to any government agency, Department of Motor Vehicle, get your Social Security number clarified and you are automatically registered to vote in your district. We should be be engaged. That’s the one thing that keeps people focused on what’s going on in their country. It’s totally crazy.
Biden’s comments are not truthful or correct. Just ask HUD Secretary Ben Carson, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott and Congresswoman Mia Love. In fact, it was widely reported in the media during the last election that the black and working man vote went for Trump. “Mostly black neighborhoods voted more Republican in 2016 than in 2012,” was one such statement from the Washington Post. Two of the President’s most vocal supporters are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, African-American sisters known as Diamond and Silk. “Trump is not a racist, he is a realist,” Diamond said during a past appearance on Fox & Friends. “And the only color he sees is green and he wants you to have some of it.”
Joe Biden has chosen to align himself with Al Sharpton, who is a known hustler and race-baiter. The former vice president is either woefully ignorant of the facts or he’s intentionally lying.
